Hayley Mary – The Drip is a loud eccentric pop rock album from 2021. The production is polished and cleanly. Her songwriting had improved significantly since the previous year.
The Drip explained the drip inside of Hayley. The song deals with alcoholism and drugs which lead to their edgy relationship which lead to her man’s declining health affecting him greatly.
It was a dirty grey day. There was a constant drizzle as they drank Lucozade. Though it was not artisanal. Just a fizzling of orange. The drip inside of Hayley. Her friend was walking around in bare feet because he’s started to use drugs. He says there’s nothing more tragic than a dead person’s shoes. Now he’s wearing the crown in his own cashmere shanty town. He always were the clown.
Now sinking in a puddle on the side of the road. They thought it was a rock but found it was a rose. They were on the drip.
Now there he goes breaking habits. The cat that Hayley can’t feed. Her cat can make her happy but not for long because patterns only keep her attention for a little while. The truth is patterns only your attention for a little while.
The third time their alarm went off, she just left him snoring for a little while because getting up again would be boring for a dirty grey day. Or for a bubble in her tea. And Hayley has been thinking how his demons are affecting his health. And maybe if she leaves him sleeping when he is punching himself, he might just fight them all off and they can fall right back in love. Oh, the drip inside of them.
Now sinking in the puddle on the side on the road. He swore it was the Rockefellers. Now he’s a ghost. It gets harder. He makes Hayley happy, but if he goes, Hayley would still be glad that she had his attention for a little while. The patterns run deep. Hayley’s gotta learn to let go of roses she can’t keep.
Sullen Kink explains her man’s kinky love with a sullen kick. The song explains how he feels love with a sullen kink.
Out on the deserted streets. The days are long and the nights are deep in mist. They play those goodbye beats. It really gets his knickers in a twist. The past is damaged goods. The past is something he should surely leave behind. But he just can’t let it go. He can try to walk away but he still loves it. He feels love with a sullen kink. He could’vе had a row but found a way to curb his appetite.
Unholy Winter shared the story of how Hayley’s man took the best part of Hayley’s life which were a portion of her golden years.
An Australian winter is coming down upon her man now because he took the best part of Hayley’s life She knew he can handle the rain. But she never thought that he would go this far with it. Hayley never thought that he would shove his shit right into her door in the midst of her unholy-holy old winter troubles. She never thought about her man at all. She was just trying to bring the spring.
An unholy winter is raising upon Hayley and he’s been holding the painter. And the picture as the same. She thought she could handle the game. But she never thought that he would go this far with it. The time she had just flying. Not writing songs about you at all. She was just trying to bring the spring.
I rate this album 4/5****.
